Opening of the International Center Global Lounge

Update:Nov. 12, 2015

The International Center Global Lounge opened in October 2015 on the first floor of the South School Building on Mita Campus. The newly renovated lounge, formerly International Communication Corner , is intended to encourage Keio students to study abroad and to promote interaction between Keio and international students on campus.

The Global Lounge is an open space for Keio and international students to meet and interact informally. A bright and airy design was incorporated so that students can feel free to come and go between classes, and lists and maps showing Keio’s partner institutions and photos are arranged decoratively on the walls. Various resources such as information on studying abroad and on partner institutions are available in the lounge, and the space will also be used as a venue for study abroad information sessions and other events in which both Keio and international students can participate. In the future there are plans to recruit International Center Student Assistants (SA), who have previously participated in exchange programs, and hold study abroad consultation sessions in the lounge.
